Good 6.0
Bad location. Many homeless people in the neighborhood. Paid extra for an ocean view but it was so noisy at night with people yelling and fighting outside that we couldn’t sleep. Had to pay an extra $35 for parking because no on street parking. They only charge $10 for random all day parking and they don’t give guests any deal. Should be $10 for guests!

Very Good 8.0
Our stay was good over all. They got us into our rooms early which we really appreciated. The rooms are spacious and ours had a small balcony but unfortunately it looked into the parking garage and alley. Not the view I was expecting for the money. As far as being clean, it was ok. We did see a few roaches in the bathroom and there was also a used Kleenex on the floor by the bed. We were in room 310 and 312 which is also across from ice machine which was very noisy. Over all it was ok for a one night stay but if I was staying longer it might have been different.

Hotel service never answered when we called, it was weird how there were different hdmi ports on the tv but the remote had no type of input button, didnt like that there was no microwave or fridge, and the balcony view was terrible

stay was ok
Our room was next to a loud ice machine. The hallway of our floor smelled like weed along with our outside balcony. We could not enjoy our balcony or Have open windows due to the smell. The place is on the older side. The toilet sounds like it needs some work. Very small parking lot. Service wise; employees were very kind. They allowed us to check in early. Great location, it is close to everything.

Not for Families
The staff at the hotel are lovely and the location is great - and that's where it stops. The hotel stinks of cigarette smoke and weed. Even with our patio door closed, cigarette smoke was coming through the vents. Every night we could hear loud music, partying, swearing. When I complained about the smoke, they sent someone up with an air freshener and though he apologized so much he was saying what can we do? We charm them the $300 smoking fine but they still smoke. By that night, I called again and complained. Trying to put your toddler to bed with loud music playing and worrying about inhaling 2nd hand smoke from cigarettes and more isn't my idea of a vacation. They need to get a handle on their guests or start throwing people out. We won't be staying again, it's too unpredicable.

Excellent Location, upscale beachy vibe
My daughter wanted to celebrate her 21st birthday in So. Cal during the pandemic. I was wary of traveling from Northern California to an area with visitors who may be more lax with masks, etc, but my worries melted away with hand santizer automated pumps near every point of contact, tissues to touch elevator buttons and extensive disinfecting practices between guests. Between that and spending our waking hours outdoors, we had a much needed and safe escape from the four walls of our home. Will definitely return! Bonus points for a large Black Lives Matter poster in the window.
